In 1930s-1950s Colombia, the social position of women was highly politicized by the government and Catholic church. This thesis investigates how Débora Arango and Ignacio Gómez Jaramillo painted the female body at this time, exploring themes of the nude, modernity, and violence in an era of political and religious animosity.
